World Cup squad 7th in relay
February 3, 2013
A United States Nordic combined team skied to seventh place Sunday in a World Cup competition in Sochi, Russia.
The squad, with Bryan Fletcher, Taylor Fletcher, Johnny Spillane and Billy Demong, jumped into eighth place in the first portion of the competition, then the team gained one spot in the skiing portion, which consisted of four 5-kilometer laps. As has become his custom this season, Taylor Fletcher laid down a scorching time, logging the fastest time of any skier on the course.
The World Cup circuit now moves to Almaty, Kazakhstan, for a pair of events next weekend.
